Film watched: ''Film/DeathstalkerAndTheWarriorsFromHell ''

-->''"We're still fighting bravely for our vague goal!"''
-->--'''Crow T. Robot'''.

!!The ''Mystery Science Theater 3000'' presentation contains these tropes:

* AmbiguouslyGay / DudeLooksLikeALady: Troxartas' bitchy behavior and his skort evoke this reaction from Mike and the 'bots.
-->'''Troxartas:''' So... I've found my lost bride at last.
-->'''Crow:''' ''(as Elizena)'' [[GenderConfusion Oh, you're a]] ''[[GenderConfusion guy]]''!
-->'''Elizena:''' You're...
-->''(Troxartas pulls down his scarf)''
-->'''Servo:''' ''(as Troxartas)'' [[Film/TheAdventuresOfPriscillaQueenOfTheDesert Priscilla! Queen of the desert.]]
** Crow then has Troxartas claim he's Film/MrBNatural later.
* AnnoyingPatient: Pearl.
* AsHimself: Or rather, the Warriors from Hell as themselves.
* AuthorAppeal: [=MST3k=]'s ripping on [=RenFests=].
* BurgerFool: In the opening sequence the Satellite crew pretend to run a business like this (while Pearl is incessantly calling his name behind him and demanding to know what is taking so long) in order to drive Dr. Clayton Forrester nuts.
** As a [[FreezeFrameBonus bonus]], Tom and Crow are wearing name tags of other members of the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' crew: Tom's says "Paul" (Chaplin), and Crow's says "Mary-Jo" (Pehl).
* {{Callback}}s:
** "[[Film/TheDayTheEarthFroze Sampo! Sampo!]]"
** "[[Film/TheMagicSword Lodac, did you back up the toilet again?]]"
** The music Pearl is listening to is from the ''Film/TheDaysOfOurYears'' short from the ''[[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S06E23TheAmazingTransparentMan The Amazing Transparent Man]]'' episode.
* CallForward: When Deathstalker blows his cover by showing the princess's sister a stick (which he had pretended was a knife):
-->'''Mike (using [[Film/{{Pumaman}} Vadinho's]] voice)''': "Get him men, he kicked Tony!"
* CassandraTruth: [[ After Crow reads to Pearl.]]
-->'''Pearl:''' ''(half-asleep)'' There was a small golden man reading to me from a dirty book.
* CreditsGag: Features singing some of the "[[Music/MenWithoutHats Safety Dance]]" song.
* ADateWithRosiePalms: After Carissa turns down his advances, there is this dialogue:
-->'''Servo:''' Guess I'll be boxing the clown, tonight.
* DrivenToSuicide: In the very first host segment, Dr. Forrester tried to strangle himself to get away from Pearl. Later, in a parody of ''Film/{{Suspicion}}'', Clayton drinks the poisoned milk ''himself'' rather than listen to Pearl whine.
* GettingCrapPastTheRadar
-->'''Troxartas''': RISE!\\
'''Servo''': Oh, not that kind of rise.
* HeavyMetalUmlaut: Joked about by the MST crew, when the title screen appears Mike wonders where the umlaut is.
* InJoke: The fast food badge Crow wears is Mary Jo [Pehl] while Servo wears a Paul [Chaplin] badge.
* [[JustForFun/IReadThatAs I Heard That As]]: Troxartas, ''not'' "Trucks Artist".
-->'''Servo:''' Can you paint my van?
-->'''Mike:''' It's Troxartas, ''SUNDAY'' at the Metrodome!
-->'''Crow:''' (As Deathstalker) Trucks Artist! Good! I was thinking maybe the cover of ''[[Music/TheGratefulDead Mars Hotel]]'' on my van.
* MadeOfExplodium: The crew giggles when Troxartas explodes after getting stabbed.
-->'''Crow:''' [[FlatWhat What?]]
-->'''Servo:''' [[SureLetsGoWithThat O]]-''[[SureLetsGoWithThat kay]]''.
-->'''Crow:''' Apparently he eats jellied gasoline on toast every morning.
* MemeticMutation: "You always were a good judge of men, Deathstalker" became an oft-repeated riff in future eps and Podcast/RiffTrax. [[invoked]]
* MillsAndBoonProse: Crow treats Pearl to a meandering, disjointed reading of a trashy romance novel.
* NauseaFuel: Deathstalker's smugness at the end is enough for Servo. [[invoked]]
-->'''Deathstalker''': You once told me it's not easy being a princess. It's not easy being a hero, either.
-->'''Servo:''' Never before has an entire medieval city thrown up at the same moment!
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: Crow wonders how long the accents at the start of the movie will last. They end up getting dropped within the ''next line of dialogue''.
* OverlyLongGag: Claaaaaaaaaaayyyyytooooonnnnn!!!
* {{Running Gag}}s: Many of them are about how Nicias the wizard looks like he stepped out of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' book.
** The numerous jokes about the bat wings on the warriors' helmets. Squeak! Squeak!
** And the incessant potato jokes when Deathstalker's girlfriend is on screen (see TheStinger below)
* SayMyName: "Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! [[OverlyLongGag Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton! Clayton!]]"
--> You're ''killing'' me, Clayton!
* ShoutOut: The poisoned milk scene at the end is lifted from Alfred Hitchcock's film ''Film/{{Suspicion}}''.
** There are numerous shout-outs to Literature/TheLordOfTheRings, including the closing sketch where Servo attempts to forge a RingOfPower for Mike. Keep in mind this was several years before the movies came out.
* SickEpisode: Pearl is suffering from ailment and making Clayton suffer along with her.
* SoBadItsGood: InUniverse, Mike calls it, "One of the most ambitiously bad movies we've ever done," while he and the bots get a lot of laughs throughout the film from it.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS:
-->(The opening credits show "John Allen Nelson" in a faux-Old English font)\\
'''Mike:''' ''Relson''? What kinda name is ''Relson''?\\
'''Servo:''' "Nelson", it's "Nelson".\\
'''Mike:''' That's one of the most clearly printed "R"s I've ever seen!\\
(And Deathstalker [[RunningGag gets called "Relson" through the rest of the experiment]].)
** Considering that Mike very well knows what the word "Nelson" should look like, this might be a case of ItsPersonal.
* TakeThat: The host segments really take apart [=RenFests=].
